    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen at all times free to employees
    Endless sick time, which is not taken from PTO

    Cons

    Layoffs. CEO. Lack of education and support. No merit increase for 2 years and counting, for the entire company. they will throw you into a role that needs to be filled, with zero training or support to ensure you can do said job. They will call it lateral so they do not have to pay you more. Employees quitting left and right. The size of the company is not 1K+, it is probably 350 at this point in time. You will never grow in this company and you will never make what you are worth.

    Advice to Management

    The management has no control over these issues. The problem is the CEO.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I met the greatest stylists working for Regis. They are very under appreciated.
    I made more in tips a week than I did on my paycheck.
    Benefits were nice.

    Cons

    Regis only cares if you sell product. You could bring in a lot of business because you’re a great hair stylist, but at the end of the week...if you didn’t sell enough, you weren’t good enough. No room for growth. You make out better doing PT.

    Advice to Management

    We went to school to do hair and make customers feel good about themselves. We didn’t become hairdressers so we could be salesmen. We paid a lot of money for our education, and we aren’t valued as professionals unless we sell sell sell. Combo expectations should not be so high. And what’s with the computer system?! It’s awful! System never works properly, and the whole business depends on it to run smoothly.

    I worked at Regis Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    We used to get 45 to 50% commission plus commission on retail. I think they have change that now. But the Pay used to be pretty decent. Plus they provided everything for you except for your shears.

    Cons

    The same as any other salon. There will always be people competing and being catty.. sometimes managing it caters to one person over the other and shows favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old pay scale

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've ever worked with. Free lunch, discount on salon services and products.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are not at market. No growth opportunities. Possibly going out of business at the rate they're franchising salons and outsourcing tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing on the shareholders and letting people go so there is more money for advertising, maybe focus on growing your stylists and corporate employees. Make it a great place to work. If you do that, you may retain some great talent and be successful once again.
